Years ago, Hirotaro Inaba purchased a Nintendo Famicom and Final Fantasy III for his son Akio. The two enjoyed playing the game together and the experience is a fond memory for them both, but they have since grown apart and barely speak to each other.

Suddenly, Hirotaro quits his job without telling his family. Akio is concerned and decides to try to reconnect with his father by purchasing a PlayStation 4 and Final Fantasy XIV for him. With the help of his Free Company and friends, Aru and Kirin, Akio plans to use his character Maidy to befriend his father and discover why he quit his job.
